As a piano or keyboard player is there anything worse than being injured and in pain - Especially if you're a professional musician? Painful injuries, like Tendinitis, DeQuervain's Tenosynovitis, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome - Even Golfer's and Tennis Elbow are the curse of so many pianists (and other musicians.) So, whether you're just starting to notice symptoms, like stiffness, tension and pain - (that may still resolve with rest) OR you already have a full-blown injury that doesn't seem to respond to anything, at this point… This episode is dedicated to helping you better understand these incredibly frustrating injuries – and find the right treatment path. We're going to cover: The truth about "Tendonitis" and inflammation; The myth of Total Rest” The missing link in piano RSI treatment; And the standard treatment approach - compared to what I believe is a much better strategy

Think Twice About That Tennis Elbow Brace!

Should you wear a brace to treat your Tennis Elbow? Although it may be recommended by your Doctor, there are several key reasons why a support, brace or splint may NOT be a sensible treatment for Tennis Elbow after all. (Unless pain relief in the short term is a higher priority for you than healing and recovery in the long term.) Yes, like so much of the "common wisdom" around Tennis and Golfer's Elbow - it's counter-intuitive!

Don't Ice Your Tennis Elbow! (Or Golfer's Elbow!)

Should you use ice therapy to treat your Tennis Elbow or Golfer's Elbow like your Doctor, Trainer, Physical, Therapist (and your friends) tell you to? Actually, no! –"But what about the inflammation?… All the medical websites and authorities say I should ice my elbow to reduce inflammation, because it's Tendonitis! Could they all be wrong?" Hint: Inflammation isn't the problem. It's not actually your enemy and probably not even the cause of your pain.

Does Swimming Help Or HURT Tennis Elbow?

Whether you developed your injury swimming and have what's often called Swimmer's Elbow OR you developed your Tennis Elbow or Golfer's Elbow injury some other way – but also love to swim… There are probably two or three big questions on your mind: 1. Is swimming good or bad for Tennis Elbow? (or Golfer's Elbow?) – Does it cause or aggravate it? 2. Could swimming possibly be a helpful rehab exercise for it at some point? – (Especially if swimming wasn't what caused the injury in the first place) 3. OR should you definitely stop swimming until your injury heals? – (Especially if swimming IS what caused the injury in the first place)

Is Platelet-Rich Plasma Effective For Tennis Elbow?

This episode discusses the pros and cons of Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection Therapy for the treatment of Golfer's Elbow and Tennis Elbow. Including whether there's any evidence PRP is an effective treatment, (based on medical studies)... Whether it's worth the price - and the pain! (Often during and usually afterward the procedure)... And whether there are any alternative approaches to achieving the same goals. What is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy? PRP (and its less-sophisticated relative, Autologous Blood Injection) are in-office, minimally-invasive “non-surgical” procedures that begin by having a small amount of your blood drawn. In the PRP procedure your blood is spun in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, by separating them from your red blood cells and your plasma, which is mostly water and Electrolytes. Then your platelets (along with some of your plasma) is injected into the injured area that's not healing (usually a tendon or ligament.) Platelets are cells in your bl...

Smashing The Tennis Elbow Inflammation Myth!

What's the first thing they tell you to do when you have Tennis Elbow? "Reduce" the inflammation, right? Wrong! Here's why you can forget all about fighting inflammation! - Why it's the biggest myth about Tennis Elbow and you don't have to worry about it. Why you don’t have to put up with the stomach-churning pills, the constant icing and the damaging Cortisone shots… Why the inflammation-fighting, reducing / "managing" approach to treating Tennis Elbow (also known as 'Lateral Epicondylitis' or 'Elbow Tendonitis') is a complete dead end and may do you more harm than good. (Despite everything you may have read or been told AND in spite of the fact that your Tennis Elbow may FEEL like it’s inflamed!)

What Is Pickleball Elbow And How Do You Treat It?

If you play Pickleball and are starting to experience pain in your elbow area, look out! You may be coming down with a case of “Pickleball Elbow!” Hi, this is Allen Willette with the Tennis Elbow Classroom podcast, and I want to help you get off on the right track, understanding and treating your Pickleball injury whether it's your inner or outer elbow – whether it's Golfer's or Tennis Elbow (more on which is which in a second) Because, if you have a tendon injury in your elbow area, it's most likely going to end up being classified as either Tennis or Golfer's Elbow.

Topical Tennis Elbow Treatments: Will They Rub You The Right Way?

What do you do when your Golfer's or Tennis Elbow is screaming bloody murder and you desperately need some relief? Do you buy some over-the-counter cream, spray or lotion – or perhaps get a prescription for some more powerful anti-inflammatory gel medication? You may get some temporary relief from your symptoms with little or no downside – (certainly less risk of side effects than with oral medications) But, here's why, although you can reasonably expect a cream or salve to help protect your skin as it heals from a cut or abrasion... You can't realistically expect something you put on your skin to help your Tennis or Golfer’s Elbow injury heal faster… In this Tennis Elbow Classroom podcast episode, Allen Willette breaks these topical remedies down into three sub classes: First covering the Non-drug herbal creams and lotions... Then the over-the-counter liniment-type drugs – found in any drug store or supermarket without a prescription And finally, the prescription-only steroid ...
